    Are you serious? Subject: Re: Hostelworld Re: 4274337: Re: [Request received] 4274279: Reference Number: 855-532947146 Thank you Talita for your response, however, I am beyond exasperated. IT DOES NOT WORK. Don’t you realize that during by now 4-5 hours I have tried all these options over and over using only ONE AND THE SAME email address. I do NOT want the app, I do NOT want an account with Hostelworld. I would NOT even contemplate risking spending another 4-5 hours trying to book via Hostelw

    Place is cleaned daily and presentable. I suggest for anyone travelling to Vancouver to stay here. It’s close to train station where you can go to most of the tourist places within 30 minutes. One thing to note is there’s a bar downstairs and I the loud music can be heard at least from my room. No issue I was out until 2am anyway.

    I had a wonderful stay at the Cambie; it is the best hostel I stayed at in Vancouver! This was the second hostel had in my trip (needed to change to the Cambie since it was closer to transportation for the next leg of my travels) and I wished I booked it for my entire stay. I was surprised by how empty it seemed compared to the other hostel (the highest rated on the website), when it was SO MUCH NICER. If you’re not into the traditional party/bar hostel scene, stay here!!

    Really central location, great staff, and clean. The bathrooms were recently updated and are nice, it was odd though, they didn't have any hand soap in the bathrooms? Overall good experience, I stayed in a two bedroom female room with a friend.
